The Yellow 47 Stude is sitting on a 84ish Bronco frame. Drew , Paula says "hey back at ya' " . These are senareos b and c . Plan a is just to SBC what I already have. Still haven't got the motor out.

    Was the top end of the stock IH engine included with the purchase? Could be a cool one to do an in-frame on, get it running for cheap.....non-split rims can be found easily. Good excuse to ditch those non-matching bias-plies on the rear axle...I'd imagine it DOES ride like it has square tires.
    Purchase? What purchase? No ,it didn't. Cylinders have 1/8 inch worth of rust pits ! The ford is structurly sound as long as your not talking about the body ! Brown van has been running well for quite some time now. Thanks for asking. I don't think I would want a Navistar in there as i would prolly have to take the cab off to work on it as you have to w/ the for body !

    Ya have a full size ford truck, and you pull it with the Chevy family wagon.... I could make a joke at Ford's expense here... but I'll just refrain - I do, however, like that suggestion about IH/Navstar diesel in there... that'd be cool

    Rebel and Tieresmoke, Shovel......I'm looking for a bobcat (just kidding) that thing is a popping machine. I really think he puts more out than he takes in. #months old and his back is 2 ft high , and he's 50 lbs. Fix the bent axle are you kidding ? I got more tires to get rid of !!

    LOL....guess it's a good thing you sold the hay-burner...makes more room in the barn for the truck.

    Neat find...is that from the barn back east of your house? Would be a great candidate for a 7.3 PowerStroke(keep your IH ALL IH...LOL) swap.

    Looks like L'il Meatball has gotten bigger since I seen him last....BTW, guys, that pup was along for a portion of the infamous "Red Ball Express"....the tradeoff-between Phil Cooper to Dan and myself.

    That red van just won't die will it?

    The trailer spindle still bent? Surprsed that RF tire held up as long as it did...we were VERY fortunate!

    Better put a shovel on the front of that truck so you clean up after Meatball.

    Drew, I put some gas drier/ antifreeze ( alcohol ) in the tank let it set 24 hrs , then fired it up kept it running for 15 min to try and burn what was in the fuel line and then slowly kept revving it to 5000 rpm. Then when I was going to put the hood down I saw sparks around the back two plug wires on the drivers side. move them away from the block and it run fair. So , at this point it looks like I had bad gas as well as two bad plug wires. Probably from when a changed the plugs when the missing started ( bad gas ) .
